FRIDAY 9-21-18

1.      The Browns took on the Jets last night on Thursday night football.   What are your thoughts about the game?


2.      The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, Christine Blasey Ford says she could testify at a hearing next week but not on Monday so long as senators offer “terms that are fair and which ensure her safety."  Should the Kavanaugh vote be postponed until Blasey Ford testifies?  Should the U.S. government be held responsible for her safety?


3.       The Dow set a record high on Thursday, the first record high since January as the Dow gained more than 251 points closing at 26,656.  President Trump tweeted, “Congrats USA!”.   Do you expect more record highs the rest of the year?


4.      Dog the Bounty Hunter is on the hunt for Shawn Christy who is wanted by the Fugitive Task Force who made threats on Facebook against a Pennsylvania district attorney when he wrote, “I promise I’ll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J. Trump.”  Christy was last seen in the Mansfield area and is considered armed and dangerous.   Should Dog leave the hunt to the feds?


5.      A study by the University of Phoenix says most Americans don’t really want to live to be 100 years-old.  Those who do want to live to be 100-years-old say there are certain variables that would need to be met:  be of sound mind and body, have your loved one still alive and don’t look physically old.  Would you want to live to be 100?


6.   A school district in South Carolina is getting rid of “snow days” and is replacing them with eLearning Days.  When classrooms are closed because of the weather, teachers will send parents digital assignments their children will have to complete at home.  If for any reason students have a problem accessing the internet, they will still be required to complete the assignment within five days on their own time.   What you like to see eLearning days be implemented in Northeast Ohio schools?


7.        Houston's Rice University announced it will provide full tuition scholarships to undergrad students from low and middle-income backgrounds. It's seen as the latest effort by a major university to do something about the soaring cost of higher education and student debt.  Would you like to see Ohio colleges follow suit?  Do you think they will?


8.      At the start of a three-day summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said that his meeting last June with President Trump has provided geopolitical stability. Kim has also given Moon credit for making the “historic” summit in Singapore possible.  The Kim-Moon summit is expected to serve as a litmus test for a possible second meeting between Trump and Kim currently being scheduled.   Would you like to see another Trump-Kim meeting?


9.      Amazon opened its fourth Go Store with no cashiers or checkout lines.   You simply swipe your Amazon Go app when you enter, cameras and sensors see what you load in your cart and when you leave the store, your credit card is charged.  Is this the wave of the future now?


10.   The Food and Drug Administration is threatening to pull e-cigarettes from shelves. The FDA is ordering the top E-Cig manufacturers to submit plans within 60 days detailing how the companies will prevent teens from using their products.  How can you keep teens  from smoking e-cigarettes?  Should they be illegal to sell?
